The “Opportunity Divide”
Talent in America is spread evenly, but opportunity is not. Today, over 5 million young adults are cut off from any real path to a stable career — despite having the talent and drive to achieve more. At the same time, American businesses face a crippling skills gap of 12 million jobs through 2025 and desperately need more skilled workers. The good news? There’s a proven solution.
